According to the website page information, the site began in October of 2000 to help offer free mammograms to women in need women for whom early detection would not otherwise be possible.
Breast cancer is a growing epidemic among women and it arouses much fear because we all know someone who had it or someone who died from it. Each year, 211,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 43,300 die. Thus the website engages the users in simple activities that are constructive and tends to raise funds and awareness for the research and solution of this issue.
With a simple, daily click of the pink button at The Breast Cancer Site, visitors help provide mammograms to those in need. Visitors pay nothing. Mammograms are paid for by the site's sponsors and distributed by the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. The website also has a store where all items purchased helps pay for a free mammograms for women.

Currently there are two join owners of this site. Long-time environmental activists Tim Kunin and Greg Hesterberg met at the University of Michigan while working on the Michigan Bottle Bill ballot campaign in 1976. Today their interests have sparked a varied interest in online activism and involvement in community projects. As enthusiastic supporters of The Hunger Site, they realized the power of providing busy Internet users with a fast, free and easy way to make a difference and launched EcologyFund.com to give people the means to support wilderness preservation efforts worldwide. They are particularly excited about The Breast Cancer Site, as both are sons of breast cancer survivors.
